FC Ballyhoo is the lone team from Eastern Pennsylvania with a chance to win a national title in Wichita on Tuesday. Steel United PA took an early lead in the 14U Girls semifinal but conceded an equalizer and fell on penalties after a 1-1 draw. 

They are looking to become the first boys team from Eastern PA to win a National Presidents Cup since the VE Green Gunners won in 2018. Two girls teams - Iron Valley United Thorns and North Union United Wave - both won the National Presidents Cup last year and were the first to win from Eastern PA since the VE Green Gunners.
